An offshore worker experienced severe injuries after co-workers dropped a pipe on his head while he was performing plug and abandonment work on a platform in the Gulf of Mexico. The worker’s injuries required treatment from orthopedic doctors as well as neck surgery. During the proceedings, the defendants questioned the status of the offshore worker as a Jones Act seaman. Fortunately, Attorneys Kurt Arnold and Kyle Findley successfully proved that the plaintiff was a Jones Act seaman because of his extensive work aboard the vessel and contribution to the vessel’s mission. In addition, Attorneys Kurt Arnold and Kyle Findley showed that the other defendants on the platform were guilty of negligence and jointly liable for the worker’s severe injuries. Pending in Chambers County, the case was settled one month before trial for an amount of $5,500,000. Our firm was honored to help another offshore injury victim obtain the just compensation they were owed.
